Canary Love

Good morning!  It's time for another challenge from the Forever Friends Monthly Team.  For this challenge we would like to see an animal/bird/butterfly (you don't have to include all three) on your card.

The Forever Friends Favorite winner will win two digis of their choice from Saturated Canary.  Remember, to be in the running for this you must use a Forever Friends product on your card.

The Randomly Selected Winner will receive a prize package from Joanna Sheen, including:

1 tin of water colour crayons
1 stamp set-vintage babies
1 stamp set-DIY
1 stamp set-Fairy
1 stamps set-Clock

See prize package below: 

Krista, from Saturated Canary let us pick an image to use...thank you, Krista!  I really had a hard time choosing, because I love her amazing images!  I choose "Canary Love" and I will admit that next came a good case of "coloring anxiety"!  LOL

The image is colored with pencils and I accented the red heart with a touch of subtle glitter.  I kept the layout simple...just distressed the papers and added a ribbon, felt heart, button/twine, and stickpins for embellishment.

Image: Saturated Canary "Canary Love" Digital Image
Ink: Printer
Paper: PTI Stamper's Select, Blueberry Sky, and Pure Poppy, Simple Stories DP
Embellies: Martha Stewart Crystal Fine Glitter, PTI Pure Poppy Twill, Red Felt Heart (Hobby Lobby), PTI Blueberry Sky Button/Pure Poppy Twill, Maya Road Stickpins
Extras: Prismas/Crayolas/Goo Gone, Spellbinder's Nestabilities, The Paper Studio Sticky Doos

I hope you will check out the rest of the DT's lovely creations...their cards are amazing!

I am also entering my card in the following challenges:

A Gem of a Challenge: Gingham or Checks
Card Makin' Mamas: I'm In The Mood For Love
Celebrate the Occasion: Valentine Card with Ribbon
Corrosive Challenge: Hearts and Flowers
Crafty Cardmakers: Vintage Love
Creative Moments: Buttons and Bows/Anything Goes
Digital Tuesday Challenge: Hearts
Divas By Design: Winged Things
Fab 'n' Funky: Valentines or Hearts
Make It Monday: Anything Goes
Simon Says Stamp: Have a Heart
Top Tip Tuesday: Let Me Call You Sweetheart (see tip below)

Tips and Tricks: Even if you are having "coloring anxiety", just go for it!  I am not the greatest at coloring, and I dreaded coloring this beautiful image.  I decided to just sit down, get busy, and enjoy the process.  After all, it's just paper and you can always try again.  You know what?  It turned out to be relaxing and fun!

Thank you for stopping by!
